People who deny climate change are like people in a burning building: "Why should I worry? The fire isn't on my floor."
The fire is on the floor below.
Normalcy bias darwinates those who refuse to act.
Corporations exist only for short-term profit. They are incapable of long-term thinking or responsibility.
If a corp can "externalize" a cost instead of taking responsibility, they will.
Corporations are not people and do not have a right to vote nor influence politics. America is the best democracy that money can buy, but that's no excuse for irresponsibility.
We are on 1 planet. Noone gets to leave.
Kids play a lot of games. FPS's, etc.
So do subtle things in the games to nudge them towards useful (to the kids hopefully) behaviors.
The canonical example I have in mind is stretching. While the character is idle have it go through some simple "ambient" stretching routines. Just simple stuff that people should do anyway.
I wonder how effective it would be.
Any corporation convicted of a felony should lose the right to "vote" via lobbying.
Felonious corporations should not lose their felony in any way, via merger nor acquisition.
If corporations want personhood, then they must suffer the same punishments for criminal behavior as a person.
Profit should never be sufficient grounds for murder, plunder, nor refusal to take responsibility for their actions. Externalizing their costs to preserve their profits is clearly not justified.
"Hey watch this, there's a hole in space in this corner," he said, flipping a nickel at the corner near the bed.
It vanished without a sound.
Sighing, she throws the covers off, and starts to leave the bedroom.
"I'm not sleeping next to that. And why did you throw away a nickel?", she said grumpily.
He slept like a baby next to the hole to nowhere.
Test posts are for me to try things out and keep around as pointers.
